West of Dublin and northwest of Galway on the west coast, the Glassilaun Beach snorkel trails are part of the well-known Killary Fjord Blueway Snorkel Trail system. Just south of Killary Bay, these water are the house reef of Scubadive West. At Glassillaun Beach, there are two snorkel trail zones located at the right and left hand edges of the beach. If there are winds from the east, use the left side zone. If the winds are from the west, use the right side zone. Both snorkel trails here are ideal for snorkelers of all levels of abilities. With the cool waters, you may want to use a thin wetsuit when snorkeling at Glassilaun Beach.

Overall, Glassilaun Beach is the 1st most popular snorkel dive spot of all 6 snorkeling dives in Ireland.
